Get Your Groove On

My favorite time to go out to the bars and restaurants in downtown Rockford is during Groove Walk. The event, put on by On The Waterfront, Inc., is an annual music walk celebrating Rockford’s downtown River District and music scene. The event happened last night, and this year 12 restaurants/bars participated. Each had varying types of live music. For $10, you get admission to all of the locations and can check out great drink specials as well as listen to some great music. Music genres included country, blues, rock, latino, classic rock, pop, and R&B.

This event always attracts large crowds and is so much fun. It is a great way to explore the downtown businesses and spend time with friends. The locations are easy to find with their lighted feet signs out in front of each participating location. Even some of the locations that didn’t participate were open for walkers to stop in and shop.

I went with a group of friends and we all had a blast. There are some great drink specials and when we got hungry, we stopped for a slice of pizza at Deli Italia, which was delicious! If you missed this year’s event, don’t worry. They usually do one in the Spring as well as the Fall. For more info on the event and to see some photos, check out
